Games Children Play: The effects of media violence on young children, a RIP booklet published by AECA, 2000

Of great concern to carers and parents everywhere are the new games children are playing which are inspired by violent media programs. Aside from the generally unhealthy direction this heralds, children who observe TV, video, and computer game violence can suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms. This book presents some disturbing facts, but makes useful suggestions about how to deal with the effects of media violence.
